About two dozen people attacked a homeless man on the subway and two teenagers were taken into custody, police said.
The 29-year-old man was on a northbound A train around 9:30 p.m. Saturday when he was attacked as it approached the Columbus Circle station in Manhattan, the NYPD said. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment of minor facial injuries.
Two 16-year-olds, a girl and a boy, are in custody, according to police spokesman Officer George Tsourovakas. They face possible assault charges.
